Fried chicken rolled in honey and black pepper and then fried again...oh and they only take cash and a slice of homemade pie is enough for 3!
Enjoyed dinner this evening at – Dined on the side porch overlooking the vegetable and flower garden...so relaxing! I had pot roast, cheese grits and collard greens. Not sharing how many cornbread muffins I ate. Should have saved room for a slice of their famous home-made pies.
Will Not Return – The owner came to our table near the end of our dining experience. He asked us how we liked the pie. We actually were not very happy with it and told him we had tried better but it would be fine for the night (and explained our reasoning). He then looked like he was going to pop a blood vessel in his neck and stormed away from the table. When we were ready to pay, we waited an extra twenty minutes for the waitress to come to our table to give us the check. Worst “highly rated” restaurant in Georgia!!
Saw owner chew out staff – Terrible experience, why the positive reviews? Veggies trasted canned, fired chicken was greasy. Service unacceptable.
Spoke to owner, I think he said his name was Bill. Not at all apologetic, very defensive. Said we we're crazy for saying his food wasn't great! Really?
Then heard the owner chewing out the female staff. Acted like an absolute jerk.
I will never return!!!
Soutern Canned – Sunday meal turned out horrific. Restaurant was empty. Could not believe a 23 Zazat rating. Creamed corn and black eyed peas tasted like canned. Brocoli casserole was not good Fried green tomatoes were greasy with no distince taste. Stay away.
Portions Are HUGE! – Southern style just the way I like it! The fried chicken that is drizzled with honey...the broccoli casserole and creamed corn soooo good...and finish it off with Coconut cream pie!
BEST PIE I EVER HAD – me and my husband love this place! we go often just to pick up one of their pies to go. their blackberry pie is the best dessert i have ever had.
The Best EVER – I love this place! Don't walk out with out a Choc... Pie to go! Don't forget the fresh Whip cream!
NOT ECO-FRIENDLY – They advertise how they have gone green but they dont recycle or even compost. Normally I would not care but they say they are a leader in going green.
Comfy, comfy comfy! Go home and go to bed afterwards! – Haven't been here in awhile cuz we moved--but now that I saw it online--I am going next week, I miss it so much. Everything is good , but way to big of portions so you should really share an entree and all the fixins with a friend or plan on taking left overs. Service always excellent. Somtimes long wait but sit and chill in the country ambience.
Great food – Don't forget Greenwood's simply because it's a long-lived restaurant. Bill is there everyday with his welcoming smile and fine attention to quality and service. The prices and quality are especially important in this economic time when entertainment monies are really budgeted. I like that Greenwood's is open for lunch everyday so that I can dine whenever I want and not be tied into any closing time (and still have plenty to take home in a "doggy bag" to have a light supper). Even though I'm a bulgur wheat/yogurt kind of person, the freshly ground hamburger which fills the homemade sourdough roll with all the trimmings AND a vegetable side or the tasty fried catfish fillets with tartar sauce made daily along with the two vegetable sides are impossible to pass up. Even my Southern mom says they are the best she has ever put in her mouth. By the way, with reference to one of your reviews, Greenwood's DOES take credit cards and DOES make sweet tea. I especially like the personable service--a respite from some of the pouty, can't-be-bothered servers you normally encounter--the continuing quality, the emphasis on organic produce and meats and all enjoyed in the beauty and serenity of the gardens. BTW, those are old hours. Greenwood's is open Wed - Sunday from 11:30 to 9:00 or 10:00 pm (sorry I can't remember exactly but I do know they don't close after the usual lunch hours).
Eclectic Southern Fare – I was raised on southern food; my grandmother could make biscuits like nobody's business and that was just the beginning. I won't say that Greenwood's rivals my grandmother's cooking, but they do offer a much more updated southern taste. I've tried a couple of different dishes there and each have been very tasty. They don't put on aires when it comes to presentation, but they don't need to with the tasty dishes they put out. The atmosphere is eclectic and this place is definitely worth a visit.
